Regarding your first suggestion: How do you envision user reporting bringing accuracy to reports? For example Trump’s tweet from 11/19 on how VP-to-be Pence’s experience when watching Hamilton was “harassment” would be reported as fake by Trump-haters (I would like to say reasonable people but let’s call them Trump-haters for now) whereas Trump-supporters would find it legitimate. An article on Clinton being innocent for Benghazi would be reported as fake by Trump supporters. User reporting wouldn’t be effective for the stated purpose.
